In the United States, statistics show that one in ten households rents a storage unit. Over 58,000 self-storage units exist in the country, indicating that families are slowly adopting this practice to store excess items. Storage units are not for long term storage; therefore, they are perfect for renovations, staging your house for sale, delaying a closing date, loss of a loved one, and moving.
“Matthew 6:19-20: "Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven."
My experience as a professional organizer and decluttering specialist has taught me that people encounter massive stuff because they are reluctant to let go. It’s time to step back and look inward when your home becomes overcrowded with possessions. The clutter in your home makes it challenging to live in, destroying its beauty and functionality. Your home should have a balance and serve a purpose. A place where you can have peace of mind, relax, and a clutter-free space.
Luke 12:15: "Then he said to them, 'Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.'"
The Bible emphasizes that we should value spiritual treasures more than earthly possessions and not place value on earthly belongings.
The average household has two off-site storage units, and the SSA survey shows that most households rent storage space monthly for at least $100. This monthly expense could benefit from retirement savings, college savings, debt repayment, or investing. In the absence of vision, the people perish. The length of time to keep a storage unit must be determined through a strategy plan, and it is essential to keep in mind that the price will increase significantly over time.
Even though your home may not seem to have any storage solutions, a simple decluttering and reorganizing session will transform it into a more functional and organized living space. It will take some letting go on your part for this to succeed.
Luke 6:38: "Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."
We cannot ignore the importance of giving because it is one of the ways to let go of excess while blessing others. By giving, you embrace an abundance mindset; with time, letting go of things will become easier.
The true purpose of our lives is revealed when we live for the blessings and growth of others, not just for ourselves.
Being willing to hand over things that no longer spark joy is essential. It is, therefore, time to revisit and assess why you need a storage unit if you have one. Keeping sentimental belongings close by is better than keeping them far away in a remote storage facility. A professional organizer's rule of thumb is, "If you haven't needed it in more than a year, you probably don't need it.".
Your home can become more functional with decluttering and organizing, regardless of size.
A storage unit or container is not viable for storing your items long-term. As a result, you will lose money, keep stuff you don't need, and become overwhelmed by clutter.
“Ecclesiastes 3:6: "A time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away."
